It counts as a stumping as long as both batsmen weren't attempting a run. You can check me on this though, I'm not 100% sure.

Okay Shahadat just got his 4th...and it's prompting me to ask:

Why does one bowler do so well in Tests but not in ODI? Is it purely the fitness level? What am I missing? Please someone elaborate on why a bowler can be excellent Test bowler but not duplicate same feat in ODI.

Thanks. =)

^ to add to that, why is it easier to explain the batsmen's reason.We all know this > "Some batsmen are more attacking, and aggressive and better for ODI, T20s than Tests (But guys like Gayle, Shewag, Hayden can handle all). It's easier to explain the reason for the batsmen. But for bowlers are ... sorry I even bothered

Has there been any bowler that drastically changed from spinner to pacer or vice versa?

Many have changed from Seam to Spin (I am saying seam as I dont know how fast they bowled)

Seam to Spin

Ashley Giles
Mohammad Rafiq

Spin to Seam

?????? Nasir almost became Spinner to Seamer

People who bowled both

Andrew Symonds
Tendulkar

There are those who can bowl both (Garry Sobers, Karsan Ghavri) and those who do it occasionally (Kumble bowled seam up in a Test against Pakistan in 2007 and took five wickets, Kapil Dev bowled some spin at Sydney 1991/2 when the wicket was very favourable to spin).

But one I can remember from recent times who abruptly and completely changed from one to the other is Shane Thomson of New Zealand in the early 1990s. He started off as a medium pacer (in his first over in ODIs, he took the wickets of Azharuddin and Tendulkar, it was the second ODI of Tendulkar). Then took a break because of some back problems and came back as a pure off spinner.

Colin "funky" Miller bowled spin after starting out as a pacer and was a regular in the Aussie side for a stretch. During that stretch he would also bowl pace based on conditions. Johan Botha was a pacer first. Our own Mohammed Rafique used to be a pacer in the Dhaka Premiere League which means he made the grade through all the ranks as a pacer. It was some international cricketer's suggestion that made him switch to spin. That's why he was quick through the air. Apparently Riyadh was a pacer to but I have not been able to substantiate that. Last but certainly not least, India's ratna and our not-so-much-treasure, Tendu and Ash can both bowl mixes of leggie, offie and seam up and Mash bowled off-break in a few matches when injured.

Why is it that almost every team, through out the history has had an explosive, beast opening batsman and his partners were always a [I]mora[/ batsmen? Except Hayden-Gilly, Ganguly-Sachin, and who else?

I understand some teams prefer an attacking+balanced combo. But I'm not talking about balanced guys (e.g Gambhir, Watson), talking about Bhimruls. Is it that hard to find 2 good opening batsmen at once?

There are many examples to the contrary in modern era - how can you forget Boon and Marsh so quickly? Or the Windiest and Lankan pairs from the 80s and 90s respectively.
